TSA changes at Orlando International Airport are being introduced.
So many guests visiting Walt Disney World start and end their vacation at the Orlando International Airport. And now the Transportation Security Administration has begun to roll out new, stricter screening regulations for carry on luggage that may impact those guests on their return flights.
Announced earlier this year, this new policy requires all electronics larger than a cellphone be removed from luggage and placed in bins for X-ray screening in standard lines.
Travelers will now need to remove all tablets, e-readers and handheld gaming devices and place them in a bin with nothing on top or below them. This is similar to how laptops have been screened for years. According to TSA Federal Security Director Jerry Henderson, “TSA has enhanced its security procedures to stay ahead of evolving threats.”
TSA officials are advising guests to organize their carryon luggage and keep them free from clutter to keep the lines moving and the process streamlined. Officials also said that there has been no changes to items that can be brought through the check point.
This new regulation does not apply to those who enrolled in TSA PreCheck.
